Dandelion Nails - swatches

Since May is coming to an end soon I want to show you the final challenge in the "May 1-31 Challenge" I've joined.
The last challenge is called "Recreate you favorite". My favorite this month is The Bubbly Brunette's nature challenge. She did some fabulous Tulips nails in a Monet style. Check them out here!
I decided to make Dandelions instead of Tulips and I'm really pleased with the result actually! They are happy and fun!

Dandelions!
I used the following polishes: (from left to right)
Essie Sand Tropez
Orly Coachella Dweller
Catrice Planet Tokyo
China Glaze Happy Go Lucky

After applying the nude base color I did some thin lines on each nail.
First with the light green polish and then with the darker green polish.
Then I did the Dandelions with a dotting tool.
I finished off with a top coat. Done!

Don't forget to check out what the other ladies are doing!

How do you like my Dandelion manicure?

  11. Umm, I'm totally loving this! I almost did the tulips as well, but I love the dandelions! :) My kids love to give me dandelions, and to be honest, they're totally cheerful on nails. :) Wouldn't it be fun to do a manicure with a field of dandelions when they're at the fluffy stage?
